    That is a nice looking kit. 6600mhz! We have come a loooooog way. I'm going to build a new PC when the next gen hardware is released. I'm also ready for new software that takes advantage of the increased speeds of this amazing memory.

    Oh I see issues and troubles rising quickly... I wonder if those fans are loud (small high RPM), fail quickly (high RPM), and are replacable (I doubt it).
    And then you can't run the RAM without the fans? Maybe have to shut down the RGB to save a few ° temperature, or downclock to run at reasonable temps?
    Or if you don't need the fans, why even put them on there?

    Questions over questions which only a review could solve.

    Glad i'm no longer in the "Need the fastest and best club".

    I can get away with Non-K CPUs, entry levels GPUs and QVL Memory. That way i don't need noisy screamer fans.

    Hey, I remember this gimmick from the Dominator DDR3 days. Except those were bigger. And louder. And had their own bracket.

    It seems to me an enthusiast PC builder would be much better off by having RAM modules with decent heat sinks and then rigging a 120mm fan to blow air directly at the modules. It wouldn't need much RPM to be better than some ridiculous 1.5 cm fans built inside a RAM cooler module. Much, much easier to replace as well. In fact, possible to replace, which those inbuilt fans might not be.

    6600 is nice Im running a Gskill 6400 c32 kit @ 6600 c30 on a MSI Godlike with a 12900ks and Aida mem is at 58ns so not to shabby for DDR5

    This Geil memory must be the ugliest memory kit i have ever seen.
